    A couple of factors at work for me:


    1. I was raised in the Pittsburgh area, where football is a significant part of the local culture. Ironically, I wasn't interested in sports when I was a...

    Sorry to hear about Jordy Nelson.

    I think Aaron Rodgers will compensate for it, though.

    Robert Griffin III has had one good season in the league, which is more than can be said about Ryan Leaf or JaMarcus Russell. Nonetheless, I don't see how he'll ever live up to the hype he got when...

    Here's a video of Bruce Gradkowski and Ben Roethlisberger practicing pressure avoidance drills at camp yesterday. Who do you think did the better job?

    The NFL Network audio feed sucks a big one. Is anybody else having a problem with it? No other channel I turn to has problems with their audio.

    Personally, I hope Joneses Jarvis and Landry have a good game tonight. It'd be their first step toward shutting up all the miserable *******s in our fan base who have labeled them "busts," even...

    "Top three all-time" is a stretch, but "better than last season" is not.

    By the way, how many "bruising" RBs have 83 catches for 854 receiving yards in a season, or average only 18 carries per...

    Never mind the fact that Roethlisberger has gotten nothing but better since Todd Haley became the offensive coordinator, or that he's thrown 86 TD passes in the 45 games he's started under Haley....

    Get rid of every QB's two best games and their stats won't be as good. Roethlisberger also managed to throw 12 TD passes in the final seven games of the season, which shakes out to 27-28 TD passes in...

    The more I learn about LeSean McCoy, the more he reminds me of Warren Sapp: a racist, misogynist, entitled bigmouth who treats everybody like ****.

    Ben Roethlisberger and Tony Romo had equally mediocre defenses as Andrew Luck, but they both threw INTs at a lower rate anyway. Luck simply needs to take care of the ball better before I'm convinced...

    Some of the contrarianism has a factual basis, though. Last season, Andrew Luck led the NFL in fumbles, and he threw 16 INTs, which is an average of one per game. I think there's a good chance he'll...

    I think Andrew Luck, Drew Brees and Russell Wilson are too high, and Peyton Manning will prove to be too high as well. I also think Philip Rivers, Tony Romo and Eli Manning are too low, and Sam...

    Everything is so quiet now. We don't even have baseball to distract us for the next few days. All there is right now is golf, tennis and NASCAR, which are all basically niche sports. July has to be...

    Today's announcers try too damn hard with the monologues and end up sounding phony as hell. Go ahead and build up the event, but be concise about it. Back then, all we needed was a two-minute...
